Ehlers Estate Merlot Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

On the palate, this Merlot displays earth tones of coffee, sage and cedar that segue to a focused mid-palate of black fruit. The incorporation of 15 percent Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend adds depth, density and structure. The wine is full-bodied, with rich, detailed tannins that integrate well with the natural acidity of the cool-vintage fruit, while the oak shows restraint, offering subtle accents of maple and cream.
